And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose. . Romans 8:28


For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout,
with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God:
and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air:
and so shall we ever be with the Lord. 1 Thessalonians 4:16,17 / KJV
Jesus is our soon coming King
James 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh."

Happy New Year!

can you believe it is already {almost} 2012?!?!
I can't! 
Wow how this year has flown by!

This is my New Year's themed card. I received the clock chipboard embellies (by making memories) from my mom. I could not find one in the pack that was pointing close to midnight, so let's just say she is getting her party started early! hahah!
and she has coffee, of course! So she will be up all night, no problem! ;)

The girly girl on the card is one of my very own Fresh Brewed Designs rubber stamps: Caution: Contents are Hot. Her dress is all glammed up with waterfall stickles.  I used papers that were gifted to me for Christmas (Basic Grey lauderdale)  as was the sentiment (stampendous merry muffins). The rhinestone bad is also a RAK from a friend that I have been hoarding for about 4 years. I have maybe 3 left. :) The plastic diecut she is attached to is from one of the kids Christmas toy packages ;D  (tip: save those! they make fun windows and are really cute for embellies such as hearts or flowers... and are pretty embossed too!) The ribbon is satin ribbon that I stitched myself and added behind the clock. 

I was feeling a little drained mojo wise, so I needed lots of inspiration for this card to be created. I first hopped to Papercraft Star where I found a coffee themed challenge! PERFECT for me, right??!?! Then to Paper Lovin Gals for this really cool photo inspiration with beautiful colors and clocks. Then on to my first ever DT blog Inspirational Card Sketches for the PERFECT sketch!

Thank you all for the inspiration. 
I hope everyone has a beautiful, safe and blessed New Year!

  3. Happy New Year Heather,

    Sorry made a mistake or two in my first effort of commenting on your card, so I deleted it and started again.

    Your card is so pretty, and I don't think there is anything wrong with starting a party early!

    Thanks for joining us.
